Today I’m introducing Nozbe for Paper™ – now you can print your actions and notes using three cool formats from within your Nozbe account – here’s the short video story (less than 5 minutes – just click on the "play" button):
And here’s the long story:
“Nozbe – simply get things done!” is a web application created using the coolest web2.0 techniques to make it a breeze to use on any computer with an Internet connection. The cool thing about Nozbe being a web-application is the fact that you can access it from any computer connected to the Internet and manage your data easily.
However, when processing your actions you are not always connected to the Internet… heck, you may even not be near your computer at the time… and then what? The first solution will come by the end of this month – the mobile version of Nozbe will be launched and you’ll be able to manage your data using your mobile phone. Cool.
However, not everyone has a cool webby mobile phone with great data-plan to be able to surf the web… so why not to combine Nozbe with the good-old-school paper?
Introducing: Nozbe for Paper™
The concept is not new, some time around 2004, Merlin Mann of 43Folders – our GTD guru – introduced the Hipster PDA – a stack of 3”x5” cards to keep you organized. No sophisticated software or hardware – just a stack of cards, a binder and a ball-pen. Simple and effective.
A couple of days ago I read a blog post by one of my favorite bloggers (and Nozbe user) Marc Orchat of Office Evolution:
“In my experience, I’ve known GTD’ers who operate at "black belt productivity" levels using nothing more than a legal pad or stack of 3" x 5" index cards (otherwise known as a Hipster PDA) and others who have attained the same level of proficiency with a plethora of gadgets and software. “
And why not combine the best of both worlds?
Nozbe’s easy of use + availability and flexibility of Paper
People have been asking me for Printing feature in the forums for quite a while and I decided to go one step ahead and offer more than just printing of actions and notes to standard A4 sheet, but also to two smaller sizes: Pocket and Wallet!
It’s so easy – just click on the “print” icon above your “Next Actions” or projects or contexts lists and choose your desired printing format:
And there’s more – you won’t need any glue or scissors – just fold the paper the way I’m showing it on the printing screen and off you go!
Standard A4 sheet of paper – mostly for Office use – no need to fold it.
Pocket size – will fit most of your jeans pockets, just fold twice and you’re ready
Wallet size – now you have no excuse for not taking your actions and lists with you.
Print in Landscape mode and fold it just as indicated. Easy.
Thanks for your feedback and support and hope you like this new feature – it will enable you to take your actions with you anywhere – no online / offline problem!
Remember, that I’ve just introduced the monthly, yearly and 2-yearly plans for Nozbe and all of them come with a special 50% offer, so grab your Nozbe account now, before it’s too late – the offer will expire at midnight Sunday, 13th May.
